  3. Sorry to hear of your loss. I have many fond memories of (Mr.Z) John. The days I would tag along with my dad to visit John down at the dock at his house or at the car lot he aways made me feel welcome. Truly a great guy.

    My memories of “Uncle Jack” are filled with laughter, fun and lots of summer swimming in the St. Clair River. My thoughts and prayers go out to my Zink cousins and their extended families.
